Formed by ex-CORNERSHOP drummer at the beginning of 1995, in Preston, FORMULA ONE are five: LEE - guitar/vocals KERRIE - keyboards/vocals/cornet DAVE - guitar EMMA - bass DAVE - drums
They played their debut gig with GORKY'S ZYGOTIC MYNCI on 18 March 1995, and have since played with the likes of THRUSH PUPPIES, SOUL BOSSA, IDEAL, HOTEL and RICKY SPONTANE. Having gigged in Preston, Cheltenham and Liverpool, with an increasingly positive response, an appearance at Manchester's "In The City" week prompted a response from the Melody Maker, September 16th 1995, "Formula One spat potential with a STEREOLAB inspired, hypnotic indie chug". Other comparisons include PAVEMENT, BOO RADLEYS and CAN.
After seeing them play live in November (for the 2nd time, just to make sure), Martin Carr took them into the studio, to produce their demo. Three tracks were recorded & mixed in December at West Orange Recording Studio in Preston, with the added help of Boo Radleys' bassist & coproducer Tim Brown.
Formula One are currently demo-ing new songs on 8-track and lining up gigs across the UK for June & July.
